Loved this place! It was a bit pricey but worth it. Prices start around $12.95 for basic plate. Their platters are huge and shareable. The hamburger I had with guacamole and jack cheese and mushrooms was delicious. They pickle their own pickles, mild and not salty. They sell them by the quart. Leave room for the homemade ice cream.

We went to Jaxson's after eating dinner. It was our first time here and we weren't disappointed. The place is a work of art with all the old license plates on the walls.The menu has a variety of items, from sandwiches to entrees, and deserts. We had ice cream. The servings are huge! Even sharing, we had trouble finishing our... More

While looking for something fun to do with the family I looked at tourist things to do and found this place. First time we only went for ice cream - even though we shared, we still had ice cream leftover on the plate. The variety of ice creams can be overwhelming. We have tried many different ones and have never... More

If you like ice cream this is the place for you. The scoops are huge and so are the waffle cones. There are endless choices of flavors. Great place to celebrate a birthday. Jaxons has been around for over 30 years in the same dania beach location. The best ice cream in town !

Food portions are large and very good. Huge hot dogs and burgers, but salads are great too. The ice cream...well...what can I say...just great. But this place is more than just an ice cream parlor/burger joint. It's an adventure. Yes...long lines to get in, but while you wait outside you can listen to live music, play with a monkey, go...

I hadn't visited Jaxson's in decades. Went with a friend for memories of our youth. It is a cramped space with lots of knick-naks on the walls for entertainment. The ice cream portions are huge and pricey. Just did not measure up to the memories.

Wonderful ice cream! It is pricey but really only one scoop is necessary as they are SO big but many want to try two flavors!!! Fruit flavors were every ones faves - only disappointment was the chocolate peanut butter - almost went back to see if we got the wrong scoop - no chunks of pb but did have a... More

I only came here to try the ice cream on the recommendation of a very enthusiastic concierge. It must be the nostalgia of the place that keeps people coming in to Jaxson's because I cannot believe that a scoop of ice cream costs $4.25 or a 2 scoop sunday or milkshake costs $7.25. Don't get me wrong, it was tasty... More
